Quad City Arts will take over several blocks of downtown Davenport this summer for its first-ever Chalk Art FEST; part of downtown Davenport’s new Alternating Currents Festival.
This FREE, family-friendly event will take place on 2nd & Perry going east toward 2nd & Iowa Ave. Spectators can stroll through the streets watching artists create magnificent works of art before their very eyes.
Artists will compete for $1,500 in cash prizes including a people’s choice award, where voters can vote for their favorite masterpiece.
Registration is free for artists, and chalk is provided. Artists can register at http://www.quadcityarts.com/chalk/.
Children, youth and adults are encouraged to participate in the community piece, where for a $10 donation, participants are given a set of pastel chalk to create a small portion of a larger image. When finished, the larger image will come to life as a complete work of art!
If you love art, music, food and culture, you won’t want to miss this fun event! For more information or to become an artist visit: www.quadcityarts.com/chalk
